Painting & The Submarine

You might be wondering what we mean by "the submarine". Actually the submarine is our nickname for our propane tank and believe me, it deserves the nickname! We decided on the big one because there are frequent power outages due to storm damage on the coast. We've heard stories from friends who live there of the power being out for several days at a time. Our submarine will provide us with enough propane to run our generator for a long time when need be. We're considering painting some portholes on the sides with little men looking out...what do you think?

The exterior of the house is almost completely painted. My brother Doug came up and painted the north side of the house. Cliff couldn't paint it himself because reaching to the top required an extension ladder. Thanks to Doug for driving all that way and sleeping on a cot! This paint job has been lots of work taking so many hours that we've not been able to count them. The only thing left to paint is the window and door trim on the south side.

We have installed 3 doors in the master bedroom and bathroom and the medicine cabinets in the master bathroom. The door of one of medicine cabinets is not on yet because one of the hinges was broken when we opened the box. A new hinge is on the way.

That's all for now!
